Nari ka saag/ kardi ka saag/water spinach

Nari, kardi or water spinach saag is a seasonal leafy  veggitable which is usually available around July - August.
This saag needs a thorough cleaning as it may be infected with micro insects thriving in monsoons.
Nari saag is commonly sowed on the coast around lakes or rivers which is why chances of it being infected with micro insects are high, however now days it's also being sowed in farms where it is more likely to remain insect free.
I remember the good old days of my childhood when we use to consume it for our breakfast with paranthas.
This saag is also very popular for it's special place in pooja (harchath) where it is consumed  with tinni pasai rice & curd amd it tastes amazing.
With the advancement towards nuclear family culture and also because only few have a taste for it, nari saag is rarely available and prepared at home.
It is easy to cook and you can also make nari saag paranthas.
all kinds of saag must be thoroughly washed.
